April sermons in the fields and woods
"And why are you anxious about clothing? Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil or spin,
|fire pink, blue phlox, and ?|
yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory did not clothe himself like one of these. But if God so arrays the grass of the field, which is [alive] today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, [will He] not much more [do so for] you, O men of little faith?
Do not be anxious then, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'With what shall we clothe ourselves? 'For all these things the Gentiles eagerly seek; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not be anxious for tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. [Each] day has enough trouble of its own."
This is the sermon I hear every day as I walk through the woods and fields of our farm or nearby trails during this month. And it's one that I sorely need to hear. I'm so thankful for God's constant reminder of His goodness and care.
